La Vie en Rose Afghan | Knit Version

Here is the wildly anticipated knit version of the
La Vie en Rose Afghan Crochet Pattern,

made by my mother in Norway who is in her 80's!

She knit 1,063 of these tiny squares...
and then sewed them together.

With a little crochet help a border was added in blue:

Here is the knit version and the crocheted version of the afghan.
Since the knit squares are slightly larger than the crocheted squares
 the blanket hangs over the sides of a queen-sized bed
more so than the crocheted banket.
Knit size......................              ..........Crocheted size 

 Both versions were made with Stylecraft Special DK and Scheepjes Colour Crafter
as indicated in the pattern.
